*The LGBT community has been throwing rocks as D.C. rapper Wale after he backed out of a concert last minute for a black Pride Legacy Festival on May 30.
The $20,000 concert was expected to go down at the nation’s capitol, but when the rapper pulled out, the LGBT community accused the rapper of being homophobic.
However, his management claims the rapper had a family emergency. His agent also released an email, saying Wale did not know the event was coordinated to celebrate homosexuality. Confusion ensued and discussion began. But to clear the air, Wale took it Twitter.
“One thing I stand for is hip-hop music. And hip-hop music knows no race, no color, no age, no gender, no sexual orientation – none of that, “ he wrote. “ So, the most important thing about it is the music, and if it makes the people feel happy, that’s what we hear. I will say, sometimes in this business you get aligned with people that don’t understand that, or don’t necessarily have the same beliefs that you do. And I apologize for not having my best foot forward to understand the people I’m in business with. And I’m going to do better, as we all do.”
